Nicolas Raskin is edging closer to a move to Rangers after undergoing a London medical, according to a report coming out of Belgium.
The Standard Liege midfielder has been linked with a move to Ibrox since the summer, when a proposed transfer collapsed in the shadow of Glen Kamara interest from OGC Nice.
Out-of-contract in the summer, Nicolas Raskin has been banished to the Standard reserves and as reports linking Rangers with a January move mount, there are now claims of a medical.
Nicolas Raskin reportedly passes Rangers medical
One report claims that a Nicolas Raskin medical was conducted in London on Friday, with the Belgian going on to pass Rangers’ physical tests.
Another claims that the midfielder was in Glasgow on Friday to finalise the tests, with both suggesting Rangers are yet to agree terms with Standard Liege over the transfer of the player.
This is in keeping with the comments of Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, who believes that Rangers are yet to contact Standard but in contrast that there is “no agreement yet” between the Gers and Nicolas Raskin.
Whatever the case, it does appear that Rangers’ interest in Nicolas Raskin is intensifying with the Belgian U21 international potentially set to be the next Ibrox signing under Michael Beale.
Rangers have already announced the signing of Todd Cantwell at Ibrox with more signings expected to follow in the coming days.
Rangers manager Michael Beale might not have revealed a medical for Nicolas Raskin, but the Ibrox gaffer has been talking about the player in the press ahead of a potential switch.
”Another good player to be fair,” said Michael Beale.
”A player I remember a lot from the time we played Standard Liege. He missed the first game against Rangers, but he played in the second leg.
”He’s a player that I’m aware of, very good player, he’s obviously out of contract in the summer and he’s attracting a lot of attention.
“There’s an interest from us but I’m sure there is from a number of clubs.”
Amid reports of a medical, could Nicolas Raskin join Todd Cantwell in the Ibrox starting line-up v St Johnstone?
